The Patriarchal Cross
The Patriarchal Cross, otherwise known outside NCAY as the 'Calvary Cross', consists of a Latin cross atop three graded steps and was introduced as a pulpit decoration in 1995 though it is also used in the temples of the Holy Order and is found on the old Coat of Arms of Central Assemblies.
The three steps represent, on different spiritual levels:
The inspiration for this logo came from a vision seen by Lev-Tsiyon on 28 October 1995 in which he saw Messiah place a large golden Calvary Cross on top of an assembly house steeple (NC&C 387). The red background represents the blood of Messiah by which we are fully saved, and the Cross His atoning work.
